ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implementation of numeric nutrient criteria (NNC) to replace the use of narrative water quality standards of the Clean Water Act (CWA) in Florida. It states that the role of CWA is to maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the Nation's Water through setting water quality standards. It also mentions that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) set the narrative standards for U.S. waters to prevent water impairment.
